Berkeley Plantation is authentic and historical. Built in 1726 of brick fired on the plantation it occupies a beautifully landscaped area on the James River. The home is beautiful and is filled with a magnificent collection of 18th century antiques. Our tour guide was superb! We also enjoyed the outbuildings and walking around the ten-acre, landscaped grounds. Benches are arranged throughout the gardens to sit and enjoy this beautiful setting. Berkeley was the birthplace of William Henry Harrison, 9th U.S. President and Benjamin Harrison V, signer of the Declaration of Independence. "Taps" was composed here and this was the site of the First Official Thanksgiving in America in 1916, three years before the Pilgrims arrived.
